PearlTrees better than bookmarking for organizing stuff online Since the Web first came online in 1991, it has grown and improved beyond anyone’s predictions. Unlike the gray background, mono-spaced text and ugly graphics on the Web in those early years, today’s Web is rich with video, interactive applications and other useful and distracting goodies. But even after all these years, the way we find, navigate and save content on the Web works pretty much like it always did.
